BOTE was founded with the purpose of evolving the paddle board industry from its surfing origins to a distinct culture built on conceptually simple, aesthetically pleasing and functionally innovative products that appeal to people from all walks of life. These innovations allow our customers to paddle faster, further and with purpose.
The idea of building a simple “base” comes directly from our mission statement. We want to allow the paddler to create their own unique experience, their own unique board. All boards come “base” level. These boards provide the perfect canvas for adding accessories and building the perfect craft for your next adventure. BOTE is the only stand up paddle board brand to make boards with accessory integration systems that allow the paddler to “deck out” their boards.
Years in the making, our new Gatorshell Technology is poised to be the next game changing innovation to be introduced by the Darkroom gurus at BOTE. In our quest to constantly improve upon the products we make, we’ve achieved something truly special. Incredibly strong and stunningly beautiful, our new line of Gatorshell boards are the toughest we’ve ever made.
The technology behind our AeroBOTEs is second to none. BOTE inflatable paddle boards transform from a form factor small enough to fit in a backpack into a fully functional SUP in minutes. Don’t worry about scratches and dings because the military-grade PVC skin is virtually indestructible. The inner core of our AeroBOTEs has tens of thousands of composite fibers that connect the top and bottom halves of the board and when under pressure create solid board rigidity.
